WJ: Rep. Maxine Waters issued a letter attacking President Donald Trump for his supposed “shamelessness” in response to the nation’s homeless crisis.
“Your shamelessness knows no bounds,” the California Democrat wrote in late October. “From day one of your presidency, you have attacked our democracy and now you have set your ire on the 550,000 Americans who on any given night experience homelessness.”
The congresswoman slammed Trump for defunding certain Department of Housing and Urban Development programs, actions she claims will increase homelessness in the United States.
